My trusty Ozone Access has worn some of its floro bridle lines..... Does anyone know of a source for replacements or must I go back to Ozone? TIA

I used to buy spools of 80 and 150 lb sleeved bridle line online but I can't remember where. I believe the brand was "laser". Use figure eight knots and match the length from the other side of the kite. Good luck!

hy windybrit,

i don't know what you mean by "floro bridle" lines, but i make all of the bridles myself. the spectra lines (red one) running through pulleys you'll probably find in your nearest boatshop like i did.

thinner white bridle line i've found in the fisherman's net shop. thickness is 1,5 mm. dirt cheap if you buy it bulk.

here are some pictures. i sew the bridle lines with the black line intentionally just to be able to monitor stitching quality after test use.

be sure your sewing machine has the zig-zag capability.
